The Life in my Stilettos

Bits & bites

I tried to sew my own pair of leggings.  I tried, I swear.
Once I had perfected one leg, the machine broke and I haven’t been able to get the stitching to “sew”.
So off to Marciano I went and bought two pairs of leggings on sale for twenty dollars each.  In my world, that’s a bargain.

Moo has been escaping from the back yard, and running as quickly down my street as he can.  Boyfriend fixed the fences today to avoid any more of this but who knows.. who really knows.  Something the size of a large rat is bound to find a way out somehow.  Also, I am still working on housebreaking him.  Even though he knows where he should and shouldn’t go, he is spoiled, stubborn and definitely not neutered which may not be helping.  We’ve also moved a few times since Moo came into my life.  If any one has tips regarding small rat like dogs and training, please advise!

My garden looks excellent.  It’s growing and growing, and I am beginning to wonder if I am going to need to extend the vegetable garden as the peppers, pumpkins and cabbage may just overflow by September/October.
This weekend, Boyfriend and I are going to garden, and clean out the garage in hopes of fresh storage and beautiful landscaping.  NEW PICS COMING SOON!

Two weeks ago, we were thrilled to go to an absolutely lovely backyard party, fully equipped with palm trees the size of the house, an open bar and buffet, and deejays.
Somehow, Boyfriend ended up manning the BBQ towards the end of the night. I think he grilled an entire tub of chicken. Sounds gross but it was DEE-LISH!
Thanks Laura and Akhil for inviting us to your home! We had an awesome time!

And, just for fun – some pics of the Korean BBQ Boyfriend and I love to get downtown at Yummies.


Fresh start, new beginnings

I’ve said it once before, I’ve said it a million times.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Who first said that? Should it be quoted? One thing I know is that I am allowed to say it as much as I need to in order to follow through and really begin all the ‘good’ in life I see in my head.

It is almost as if there are two people inside of me. One that concocts all of the fabulous ideas in my brain – and another, who either does or does not carry them out.

There are pros and cons to that. It means I don’t rush, and I usually think things through, and also that it just literally does not get done, or so much more could have been done than I actually did.


My gym membership, teacup yorkie, full time job, and full time boyfriend are really catching up to me. Did I mention friends, family, and saving money?
On top of those, there are the ‘in-laws’, impressionable sibs, saucy girlfriends, and the pampering and grooming of myself regularly that drive me bonkers some days. How do mujeres (ladies) keep up with it all?

This blog is about myself, and other ladies alike myself who want balance and sustainance in every part of their being.

Join me in healthy eating, fitness, gardening, sewing, partying, families, animal care and home as well as literally every other aspect of life a lady can handle.

Please follow me and send me any type of feedback as critics and followers are necessary for everyone to learn something.

Thank you.
